I believe what makes lettrs special is that the amazing design and the authentic people here literally invite you to slow down, enjoy a quiet reading or a reflection in writing.

The people of lettrs give me hope that a kinder and smarter network is not just necessary, but possible.

I would not change a thing!

Dear Friends,
After millions of collective hours and creations on lettrs I would like to hear from YOU!  

What would you suggest to make lettrs better?  Keep the same or change it up?  I would like to hear from you in comments or a letter to me.  I am humbled by the millions of miles lettrs have traveled as the network of human intelligence alive and well.

Reply without Response

“Yes, I am safe and sound”. The mind harks back to a time when you had a role to play in that. Like being forced to step off stage, and take a silent spectator’s seat as the play goes on and a part of you goes on, but without you. And when the only respite you get is by averting or shutting your eyes, but you cannot keep your eyes shut or averted forever, as life unfolds before you.

“Thank you for keeping me in your thoughts.” Oh, what cruel irony - to be thanked for an affliction you see as incurable and inescapable. Like the breath of life that thanks you for giving it a place in your lungs. The effort, unseen, unacknowledged, lies in keeping her out, to tame your t...

When we think about darkness we immediately connect fear and all the bad things that the black color is related with. Can a dark color be powerful too, like yellow, red or other vivid colors? Yes it can because it’s MAGICAL, MYSTICAL, POWERFUL, in its own way.

We fear darkness because it doesn’t shine, we fear it because our ability to see shrinks more and more as it gets darker. Yet, the darkness makes us see things we couldn’t see in a sunny day. In every black moment there is a light that is guiding us through life. How else could we see those beautiful fireworks in a bright day? How else could we recognize those mystical fireflies by daylight? How else could we make a wish after seeing ...

Being a different breed is not a bad aspect, in fact it’s one of  the few compliments that I can give to someone. In simple terms it means that you are not like the norm. You don’t fit in a genre, a class or a stereotype even though you can portray to fit in or others proclaim you are what you are...in a sense you are part of the world's black sheep.

As you know, you are a someone who is hard to read, everyone sees the shell of a person but very few see the depth of what lies beneath it - those walls that formed over time based on your life experiences.

Even I have a hard time figuring you out which frustrates me at times as it’s new...

Some aspects I get right, but others I read wrong....

Home

I always dreamt of building a home,
With French windows and garden gnomes,
A little puppy named coco,
Sitting under the painting of Van Gogh,
A book in a hand and spectacles hanging low,
Lazing on a swing at the patio,
But then he comes and wraps his arms around,
The one who doesn’t mind being my clown,
It is then I see in his charms,
Home has always been in his arms.

Your touch soothes me when I am plagued by doubt
You are my purpose in life

For your caress reaches to the core of my heart

A women's heart is very delicate. It's as soft as the touch of a rose petal. Once you leave a mark, it may never go away but she will still stand strong and continue to move on with her day. She may be harsh and cruel, but she will never be unfair. She will love with every atom in her body. But she will never let anyone hurt her loved ones. She is a warrior, inside out. A woman can achieve anything. If you start to shelter her, then be prepared to shelter her for life. Otherwise stay back. If you promise to be with her, then promise her for real. If you believe in her, then maintain that belief. If your heart was once content with her, she will come back. She is a fighter just struggling with...

It seems two paths that have run parallel for quite some time have finally collided,
The interaction brought by the intersection  left both completely blindsided.
And although we see this everyday as our paths overlap with that of others,
We know when something special hits as we are aware of life’s constructors .
Buy once these paths separate which can happen awfully quickly,
you can only hope that they are brought back together brought safely, brought swiftly.

His flawless personality! She instantaneously fell into his arms. She felt a sense of perfection with his presence in her life. Emotions heightened, blissful with completeness and ecstasy. She was mesmerized by his moves. Her past erased, present and future brimming with his ubiquitous presence. Her face glowing with contentment. She finally met her kindred soul. Her life so pure and complete that she was ready to perish. There was nothing left to procure as she was blessed with his love for eternity.

And I, in dizzying desire,

For even in nauseating hunger for your heartstrings, I can only forsake so much of my resolve.
As I near full tilt into your hands I cease spinning and hault abruptly at your fingertips...

She was nervous and he was away. A million thoughts were running in her mind. She was doubtful if she was doing  the right thing. She was highly unsure if he really would be right for her. She wasn't marrying him by choice, it was family pressure. She didn't have any big wishes in that moment, just a loving life partner who'd make her happy. But it wasnt going to happen and she didn't want to live..

He didn't know what was wrong but he was trying to read her eyes. She didn't return his gaze, afraid that he might know. He took her hand and began to gently dance, looking deep into her eyes, she felt like a book he was lovingly devouring.

He quickly returned to the back of the table where she was still oblivious to new developments. For a moment, there was a pin drop silence. Silence in the room distracted her.

Pillowtalk turned into fights with my demons
Used to fall asleep laughing now I wake up screaming

Cuz I feel closest to Heaven when im dreaming
And there ain't much difference from Hell when I'm conscious
Looked down at my daughter and i catch myself bleeding
Wishing on stars I could go to sleep faded
Swearing on God imma serve Him if I make it

AGAPE

His eyes seem to smile at me,
I wonder if it was still a dream,
Or a moment of temporary time frame
I wondered if he meant it,
I asked him million or uncountable times,

"Do you think you surely love me?"

He would plainly kiss my forehead and pass that same smile again,

"I love you" i confessed again

"And i owe my life to you" he would say

"Why?" I asked..

He was silent. Pecked my forehead and said

"Because thats my lifeline...I dont even ask you to sray with me because i love you but yes I will be doing it all my life"

That was it, my life ahead

Let you leave my breathe, my veins, my soul
If it wasn't for the seconds
The trillions of seconds I gave to you
If it wasn't for the memories
The infinite memories I have secured of you
Right here, in my heart
If it wasn't for the flashbacks

The Wolf and the Doe

I wear my damage
Like jewelry
Wreckage, like
Pearls around my throat
Cradled by echoes of
Past bruises, violence
The wind blows right
Through me, howling
And I howl back, I've
Always been
Crying out for something
But now my
Mouth is closed.
I see mountains, ridges
Spearing into the sky
Framed and dappled
By sunshine and pine
I think I could make a
Home here, if I could
Ever make a home.
I think I'm learning how
To put away my
Scars, pluck my heart
From my sleeve, stop
Being dragged endlessly back
To the moments of impact,
Fists crunching into my face
Bone meeting cartilage
Secrets whispered in
Hushed tones collected in
The shells of my ears...

I'm crying for help, but no one listens
In my eyes, tears glisten
But still I'm crying to deaf ears
It's as if no one cares

Oh, I know there is Someone thats cares about me
But this Someone, I cannot see
I want to talk to Him, but it's as if He has blocked me from His View
And, if so, who am I talking to?

Or is it me that's blocked him from talking to me?
Am I the one that cannot, Him, see?
This is too complex for me to figure out on my own
But I know that, even if I don't feel it's true, I'm never alone

You want to cry, tears running down your face
Standing in front of the mirror as you watch the drops race
Down Down they go, falling gently with ease
Why couldn't your life also be a breeze?

It started when you were five, mommy left you for a drink
Your daddy tried his best but was dead in a blink
You roamed the dirty streets until the orphanage took you in
But whenever you fought with children you just could never win

By twelve you had run away five times
Then brought right back after committing some crimes
Every one ignored you, hated you, despised you
Wanting to die you took your last view

Before you could jump someone knocked at your door
And before you knew it someone ...

Wings to fly?
Dreams to conquer?
Castles to rule?
Men to serve?
She didn't ask for any of them
She just asked for one life
That you live, he lives and
everyone else lives
She just asked for her dignity
Which her life is bound to serve
And that too
was snatched away
harshly, mercilessly, cruelly
She asked nothing but
A life she could live!

Namaste!
Welcome to my letter #1
Smile and get started!

Words are not mere words,
They are water.
                   (On a side note: once he told me that his favourite quote was, "Be water my friend", and I sort of grew on it)
They are water 'cuz
They are the war scars and they are the wound
They are the cause and they are the cure.
They let soar high in the dreamy skies
Yet they pull you back to ground ties.
They let you dream
And take form even of your screams.
They are extravagant magic
And they are the reality tragic.
They are the reins and they are the wings
Sometimes they become those li'l strings.

Now I feel like I've run out of all logic😂😂
See you soon, when ...

I wouldn't call you as someone I love
nor call you as someone I despise
for you had me at the junction of the two
confused, without a hint of your true self.

I wouldn't curse you for my nightmares
despite you, the nightmare in human form
nor praise you, for standing in my shadows
lurking in an evil gesture, but still behind me
through days and nights without a pause
despite toying with my mood swings
playing with my innermost self, smiling
through all of my tears and trembles
admiring my heart, break in all fragility
watching me fade, in all sobriety
for your felicity, wondering how
I would get back up when all I could do
was break, break, break and keep breaking

Wading through the murky waters,
She looked for that part
Of her which had gone missing
Since what seemed like eternity.

The water was getting deeper,  and it was becoming harder to see,
As remnants of her memories,
Traces of her desires,
And aspects of her fears
Were floating all over.

But none of these reverberated
With her inner self;
They were just hers from one lifetime
To find her core, she knew
She had to face the totality of her
Fears and desires,
Cleanse the darkness of her roots
Submerge fully in the waters of
Her infinite mind,
In order to emerge as a whole.

Before you go,
So time will not erase the
Person that we know.

Fleeting life..soon forgotten,
The fireman, the soldier,
The doctor, the priest.

The obscure life with
No headlines,
Yet well lived with devotion
And self sacrifice....

The handprints with their
Unique patterns
Scream “ don’t forget me”.

Impressions.
It was a lousy afternoon. I was working all day long with my sister to paint our house. There were newspapers, paint brushes lying on the floor. Whole of the house was filled with smell of oil paints.
My twin sister was dizzy with the smell and wanted to go out for a while. But me being lazy as usual refused to even step out of the door. And so she left alone. Which I later realised was one of my worst decisions.
It was not long after that she left, that my neighbour came over for a cup of tea, without invitation. But being in India and being a girl as well it was my duty to look after the guest well as my parents and my sister were unavailable.
The moment I ente...

Maybe, I could let you go
Let you leave my breathe, my veins, my soul
If it wasn't for the seconds
The trillions of seconds I gave to you
If it wasn't for the memories
The infinite memories I have secured of you
Right here, in my heart
If it wasn't for the flashbacks
The flashbacks that keep running in my head
Like a movie, unending.

Today was really terrible, where I mainly felt down. Family had the biggest impact on my day. Tried apologizing to my brother & sister in law for the bazillionth time... and he lashed out even harder at me for things that he & her both perceived incorrectly. For things that they won’t even try understand. Like high functioning autism, my communication style, what I’ve gone through and what I have been through.

Family is telling him what I put on Facebook... I’ve tried to stay impartial... It’s been made very clear that he cares more about what people think then mending our relationship. He cares more about preserving his reputation, them working out the fact that he beat me my entire life. ...

What You Drew

I need to lay my head 
On your naked chest
Accompanied by the comfort 
Of your blue sheets

I’m sorry for the stains 
I left there
Between the plaid print covers

I wear your clothes now
And wait for your return
Since I can’t feel your touch,
I resort to clothing that once belonged to you
To provide warmth 
And protect my skin from the cold air

Until your return
I will not feel safe 
Because in times of grave danger and distress
Your arms are where I run to 
A sanctuary of goodness and relief to me
And you are my favorite place to hide

With each joke I hear I find myself 
Pausing and looking to my side 
To hear your reaction
And see your wholesome smile
But then the sting of ...

Can I ever forgive you?
When you ask me to forgive you, someday in life, I simply tell you that I'm not angry. Because I'm not. I'm not upset, I'm plagued. Plagued by the absence of you, shattered by this present, this unforseen present dumped on me. I'm not angry at you, I'm lost, lost of any purpose, deprived of any wish, abandoned. I sulk through the days, cry through the nights, not because I'm angry, but because I was pushed out, with no trace of regret, my identity taken away from me. I cry, because I know I'm not missed, not because I'm angry. So, don't ask me for forgiveness dear you, it's not your fault. It's love's fault, for it decided to reveal it's true natur...

i will keep her safe

Maybe I wasn't the best thing that happened to you. Maybe someday, it would be easier to accept that.
Someday, when you come back to our city, would you feel the rush to come visit my place,once your heavenly abode?  In that moment, would you regret the decision you took, would you regret leaving? That day, when you find that nothing really changed here, would you know that neither did I? Would the roads leading you to my place, tell you my story, explain how I passed my days, in your absence? Would my terrace show you traces of my presence, as I looked upon the road, for time infinite, hoping that you would return until it eventually exhausted me? Would my house speak of my cries, of the ...

When we think about darkness we immediately connect fear and all the bad things that the black color is related with. Can a dark color be powerful too, like yellow, red or other vivid colors? Yes it can because it’s MAGICAL, MYSTICAL, POWERFUL, in its own way.

We fear darkness because it doesn’t shine, we fear it because our ability to see shrinks more and more as it gets darker. Yet, the darkness makes us see things we couldn’t see in a sunny day. In every black moment there is a light that is guiding us through life. How else could we see those beautiful fireworks in a bright day? How else could we recognize those mystical fireflies by daylight? How else could we make a wish after seeing ...

So many doors are open.

All I have to do is take a step forward.

Walk through and allow life to change accordingly.

But when I get ready to move it feels like my feet are made of stone.

My mind gets clouded

I start to feel nauseous

So I stay, I don’t move.

The door closes and I wait for the next door to open and the opportunities it withholds.

But once again,

I get butterflies

Shaky

Nauseous.

Why am I stuck in this hallway?

Why am I torn on the next step in my life?

Why can’t I pick the right door?

Isn’t this what I’m supposed to do? Follow my dreams?

Why can’t I step forward? What’s holding me back?

Thank you, maybe?

Do you remember the times, you would ask me what I need from you and I would simply say, Nothing. I've always been the same.
Maybe because, what I always needed was your presence, a small token of assurance that you are around. Because, a tiny affirmation, that you see me, acknowledge me, hear me from no matter where in the world, is fairly adequate for me to be okay.
Because, the sound of my name coming from you, twitches my frozen soul, runs fresh blood through my numb veins,awakens my breathe and makes me want to get up and move.
So, Thank you, maybe?

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood
- Marie Curie

But when your sweet distraction becomes your obsession and your worst enemy....
Life goes down the black hole and becomes pitch black.

This is the time to go back to the quote 'Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood'.

We learn from our experiences and aspire to reflect and become the greatest in our lives. For ourselves and for others. It might be the best worst distraction you ever had in your life but it is the one that brought in the most needed experience to make that imperative change in your life.

Let your life sing its own song, spread its wings and soar with pride!

When I first saw you, I had never seen eyes that seemed so lonely.
I reached out to you and gave you my hand so boldly,
A man shaped by misery,
Shrouded in mystery,
Tucked behind a crowd and a smile,
Unravel his charm and he'll make it worth while.

Sometimes I question everything
Like why am I hated?
Why do I bother trying when all I do is annoy people?
Why have I lived this long when I shouldn't have?

I often think back to year 6 when I had the chance to end it all
Yet I didn't
What a shame

Since maybe if I had I could avoid being a nuisance a presence of disdain.
Or to the time in Turkey where I could have jumped of that building
I had so many opportunities yet I wasted it

I'm sorry
Sorry for being alive for so long
For not dying
I know you hate me
I hate me too

But don't worry my time will come and maybe then you will finally smile at me.

Do you remember my name? And the fact that I loved to hear it in your voice. That occasionally when I called out to you, it was only so I could listen to you, say my name. That every time you called my name, I felt safe, I felt your assurance, I believed that you were around.
Are you around anymore? Will you not keep me safe? Will you not assure me that it's going to be alright, that whenever I would need you, you would lend me your hand?
Have you left already, moved on?

They sat opposite each other in a dim lit beautiful romantic restaurant.
Apart from the candle light, there was one more thing in between them. "Silence".
Not many words were spoken other than the taste of the food.
Even though they saw each other after days, the spark between them was lost. The silence between them was leading to the end of an era.
The hug at the end of the night was no more a, 'I miss you. Meet me soon' .
All it said without words was 'Goodbye'.
